I definitely bought more than enough stationery to last me for the duration of my degree last year, but I'm not one to pass up an excuse to buy more. Not only does the start of a new academic year call for a new wardrobe, it also calls for a supermarket sweep style run around the likes of Paperchase to pick up the "essentials" for the year ahead. I think I've been quite reserved in my stationery shopping this year, having finally figured out what I actually need as I enter my fourth year of further education, but I probably don't really need half as much as I think I do in the first place. I'm a sucker for a "back to school" marketing campaign, what can I say?!

My classes started back yesterday and as much as I appreciate the return to a routine, the 9 am starts are killing me slowly already. My first semester modules all seem pretty interesting, though, and I have two days off a week which is always a bonus. This is my last year at college, but I'm about to start applying to universities for the second half of my degree, which is a tad scary. No pressure, y'know. I think I know where I want to go so here's hoping I actually get in. I'm trying to start as I mean to go on, with lots of organisation and keeping on top of my notes, but we'll just have to see how long that lasts...

Why I Don't Like the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette

Are you sick of hearing about the newest addition to the Urban Decay Naked family, Naked Heat, yet? Considering that half of my Twitter feed has been reviewing it, I wouldn't be surprised if you are. I absolutely love Urban Decay and they're one of the brands that I've been a fan of since the beginning, so I tend to get caught up in the inevitable flurry of social media excitement whenever they announce a new release. The previous addition, Naked Smoky, is my ultimate favourite palette (which they've announced that they're discontinuing and have thus broken my heart) so I was really looking forward to seeing what they'd bring out next.

When Naked Heat was first announced I wasn't all that fussed, if anything I was a little bit disappointed. Warm shades do not suit my Casper The Ghost complexion, and as soon as I saw it I was having flashbacks to the time I tried to wear an orangey-red eyeshadow to school and spent the day being asked if I had an eye infection. Ugh, high school. Anyway, failing teenage experimentation aside, I just wasn't sold on Naked Heat at first glance. The first run of preorders came and went, with the palette selling out in minutes, but my bank card stayed firmly put in my purse. Then, one day, I opened the door the the familiar pink packet that I associate with Urban Decay, and there it was. The Naked Heat palette. All for me. Yup, I was part of that blanket send out, and I was kind of shocked to be included, to be honest.

If you hadn't already guessed, I wasn't really planning on buying this palette, but when I opened it and saw the beautiful, buttery shades in real life I thought it was going to prove my doubts wrong.

Naked Heat has the classic Naked palette packaging, a long, slim palette with a range of 12 matte and shimmer shades alongside a double ended brush. In a similar vein to Naked Smoky, the palette is housed in a sturdy plastic casing with a magnetic closure. I love that it has a huge mirror in the top, which makes it handy to take out and about. It is quite chunky but it's not obscenely huge, which also helps on the portability factor. I'm not a huge fan of the design on the top, which is supposedly created to look like the view of a sunset through blinds, or some other random imagery like that, but it is in keeping with the overall aesthetics of the shade range.

Like other Urban Decay eyeshadows, the actual formula is a real strength of this palette. I find Urban Decay shadows to be some of the best, as they're creamy and blendable but definitely not lacking in pigment. Some of the matte shades can be a tad dusty, but nothing more than I'd expect from matte shadows in the first place. I know I can rely on Urban Decay formulas, and Naked Heat is no different.

But even that beautiful formula doesn't detract from the fact that I just do not like this palette. Why? The shades. I'm not into warm eyes, they do not suit me no matter how hard I try, and instead of feeling like a sultry Olsen sister I instead end up looking like I have a nasty case of conjunctivitis. I thought I could make this work, but for me, the shades in this palette are all way too warm. I don't think there's enough variety in the underlying tones and colours here, which is fair enough as it's obviously intended to be a warm palette, but I would have loved to see some deep golds in there too. I think if it had included some gold shades it would have been much more wearable for me.

I feel like I'm one of the only people who isn't raving about this palette, I mean even Naked-hater Lis has been loving Naked Heat, but it just wasn't meant to be for me. Hey, I was never going to love everything that Urban Decay brings out, so me not liking one of their numerous palettes isn't the end of the world. I am still planning on picking up some of the earlier palettes, because the original Naked palette has been calling my name for a while now and I'm not one to resist temptation when it comes to beauty products.

Not to fear though, I have passed this palette on to my friend Katie who also writes a blog sometimes and is my go-to gal when it comes to chatting makeup. I know that she'll treat it like it was her first born child, so it's in safe hands. She also posts her bangin' makeup looks on Instagram on the regular so go follow her if makeup is your cup of tea. She better bloody read this post and see how nice I'm being.

So yeah, despite the hype, Naked Heat was not for me. The quality is top notch, as to be expected from Urban Decay, but the shades simply did not float my boat. If you do enjoy a warm toned eye, then it is definitely worth checking out, because it's hard to judge based on pictures alone.

Back To College Fashion Edit

Student Style Back To College Uni Wishlist | Colours and Carousels - Scottish Lifestyle, Beauty and Fashion blog


Unfortunately, my summer is pretty much over, and second year officially starts next week. As excited as I am to have some routine (and my student loan) back in my life again, I'm kind of dreading the prospect of rush hour traffic, 9 am classes and the looming university application process. I haven't done anywhere near as much as I wanted to do this summer and I feel like this year is going way too fast already, so the fact that it's now nearly September and my final year of college is about to start has sent me into a bit of an existential crisis. This time next year I'll hopefully be going into my third year at university, so that is both cool and worrying.

Anyway, minor breakdown about the passing of time aside, a new year calls for a new wardrobe in my books, so here we are. I like a pretty laid back style for classes, with comfy trousers and slouchy tees being my favoured pieces, but I also like to bring in a bit of sass sometimes with lil' denim skirts and fun sleeves. I think I've got my "student style" pretty much nailed now, I know what I like and what I can be bothered pulling on for those early morning lectures.

Last year, I discovered my hidden love for trousers, in a big way. I'm still on that trouser hype, but I think I've got pretty much all of the bases covered in my collection now so I'm trying to buy fewer pairs this season. We'll see how long that lasts, though. I couldn't resist the Clueless-esque yellow check trousers from Urban Outfitters because I will always want to dress like Cher, and they feel like a slightly more subtle way of showing my obsession than a full on two piece skirt suit.

A new obsession, however, is my dungarees. I've wanted a pair forever and I finally found the perfect pair that fit like a dream (more on them soon, I promise) so I'm wearing them most days. There's something about dungarees that make me feel sassy, and all I want in life is to feel sassy, okay. Since buying my dungarees, though, I've realised just how few tops I have that work with either them or just my jeans. Plus, I replaced my crumbling old drawers with some shiny new ones and swiftly realised that I had a drawer and a half free to fill with tops, so that's the main category on my shopping hit list at the moment.

With Scotland being Scotland, knitwear and jackets always have to come quite high up my shopping list, no matter what the season. I feel like I've barely seen the sun in Scotland this year and bar a couple of nice weeks back in May the weather has been pretty rubbish. I have visions of myself kicking about in huge cosy cardigans with my cool dungarees, so I'm on the hunt for the perfect oversized knit to add to my wardrobe. Jacket wise, I don't have too many sensible jackets outside of my trusty leather biker and my little yellow raincoat, so I'm tempted to pick up a new denim jacket and a couple of winter-appropriate coats, too.

I basically live in trainers and they're the perfect choice for casual days at college, which has led to me eyeing up some cute new kicks for the new year. I have finally replaced my beloved Adidas Gazelles after nearly three years of just about daily wear, and as hard as it's been to say goodbye to the shoes that have come along on so many adventures with me, they were looking pretty tired. There was no way they would last another Scottish winter, not with the holes that I'd worn in the sole! I've replaced them with a pair of grey New Balance trainers instead, which I know I'll be getting plenty of wear out of.

Unsurprisingly, grey is one of my favourite colours for clothes, so a lot of my wardrobe revolves around it. I've been introducing a little bit more colour, but not too much of course, mostly in the form of graphic tees or pops of pink. I'm not afraid to say that I bloody love "millennial pink", as much as I hate the name, so there's a lot of that popping up in my wishlist too.

Really though, I'm mostly waiting for the regular 20% student discount at ASOS to start again, so that I can fill up my basket with some lil' treats on the regular. Someone should really take my bank card away from me, but I guess that even after dropping out of my fashion management course, my inner fashion student will never leave me. Or maybe I just love shopping, idk.

Lovisa Jewellery at Buchanan Galleries

You know how sometimes, you come across a new brand or a new product, and you just can't stop shouting about it? I mean, that's basically why I started this blog, to share the discoveries that I think are worth shouting about, and Lovisa is one of those. I'd never heard of Lovisa before seeing the new store open in Glasgow's Buchanan Galleries and as soon as I spotted it I knew it was going to become a firm favourite. There's been a lot of new openings in Glasgow this summer, but this one has to be one of my favourites so far.

Born in Australia back in 2010, Lovisa takes inspiration from high street and high-end style to bring on trend jewellery to their customers. Stocking everything from rings and necklaces to watches and hair accessories, they have a stunning range of both understated and bold pieces that are bound to suit anyone and everyone. They actually have stores in 12 countries around the world, having recently expanded into the UK, but the Buchanan Galleries store is their only Scottish venture. Glasgow is definitely the style capital of Scotland in my eyes, so it's no wonder that global fashion brands flock here.

Their Glasgow opening couldn't have come at a better time, really, as I threw away nearly my entire jewellery collection to start afresh. I don't wear a lot of jewellery, mostly because I don't have a lot of jewellery, and in the past, I'd found myself favouring very similar pieces that weren't particularly versatile so didn't get a lot of wear as a result. I have my favourites, like my lucky clover necklace and my beloved Pandora bracelet, which obviously stayed due to their sentimental value, but apart from those two and a handful of other token pieces, everything went.

When I say new in, I mean new in my collection, at least. Revlon is one of the few drugstore brands that I hadn't really had much of an experience with, but now I'm kicking myself for missing out on their products for all of these years. I hadn't originally been planning a full, dedicated post on these products, instead intending to feature them in a roundup or currently testing post, but I was so surprised by how much I love them I figured they deserved it. It's been a little while since I felt so excited about new makeup, and when you find yourself reaching for the same products day after day you just know that they're worth shouting about.

I've always seen Revlon as being at the slightly more expensive end of drugstore brands, which is probably one of the main reasons I'd never tried much from them before. To be fair, though, the prices are pretty in keeping with other brands in stores now, so that does seem like a bit of a misconception on my part. In saying that, though, I do feel like the packaging for their products is reflective of this image, with plenty of simple yet sleek shapes and nothing too "gimmicky". It feels a bit more sophisticated than some of the other brands on offer in the likes of Boots and Superdrug, which is always a nice touch.

Would you believe it if I told you that this blog was seven years old? I swear it feels like I was celebrating six years just yesterday, but here we are. I never imagined, all those years ago, that setting up this blog from the comfort of my teenage bedroom would lead to this. By this, I mean a hobby that I've actually managed to stick to for a long period of time, that isn't playing The Sims. A place where I spill my thoughts and feelings out on to a page for the world to see, on a regular basis. Something that has brought new friends and experiences into my life, and cemented my passions for writing, photography and all things digital. This little spot, where I ramble and rave about the things I love, has changed my life in ways I never could have dreamed of back when I was 15.

So that's why, in celebration of seven years, I'm actually posting two outfits in one week. A very rare occurrence these days, but when I said that I wanted them to be a more regular feature again, I meant it. It helps that I've also rediscovered my online shopping addiction, meaning there have been a fair few new additions to my wardrobe. This top, for example, which caught my eye when browsing New Look's new in section and instantly made its way into my basket. I'm not sure why, because it's not really what I would expect from my typical style, but I'm kind of in love with it. It's easy to wear, with cute floral details and a feminine frill to add a bit of interest, but the cut helps hide my eternal food baby and it also looks banging with a pair of classic black jeans. Basically, it ticks all my boxes, although it does crease like a bitch.

In a change from the norm, I'm not wearing my standard jewellery uniform of my four-leaf clover necklace and Pandora bracelet, and it's all because of Lovisa. Lovisa opened in Buchanan Galleries a few weeks back and I can't walk past it without paying a visit. Not only do they have those earrings (that everyone and their gran has) in a whole rainbow of colours, they also have a gorgeous mix of stunning statement pieces, daintier styles and plenty of rose gold - exactly what I like in my jewellery. It's a veritable treasure trove, and I'm planning a whole post about the shop next week, but I couldn't resist pairing these bold red earrings with this top because they make me feel sassy as hell, and that's what I'm all about these days.

The Low-Down on Benefit's Boi-ing Concealer Collection

Benefit's main "thing" at the moment seems to be repackaging their old favourites, with their brow range being first up on the revamp, now followed by their concealer collection. The classic Boi-ing concealer now has four variations, including the new Airbrush Concealer which was released earlier in the year. I'm pretty loyal to my budget concealer of choice, the Seventeen Stay Time concealer, and have been using the drugstore steal religiously for over two years now, so I was interested to see how the new range would fare in comparison.

Concealer is my one must-have in my make up routine, and I've tried a few of Benefit's concealers before, including the original Boi-ing and my old favourite Fake Up, so I had pretty high hopes for the new additions too. I wasn't a fan of the new packaging for the brow products, but I'm really loving the cute update to the concealer packaging, with the pale pink and swirly font giving it a bit of a kitschy feel that I always associate with Benefit products. The majority of the range comes in little pots, which is probably my least favourite form of concealer packaging, but they do have wide enough openings which make it easy enough to actually use the product.

Benefit Boi-ing Concealer Review Airbrush Brightening Industrial Strength Hydrating | Colours and Carousels - Scottish Lifestyle, Beauty and Fashion blog

Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer

The newest addition to the range and an entirely new product, as far as I can tell, is the Airbrush edition of the concealer. This concealer has a consistency that is more akin to being described as whipped, with a lightweight formula that boasts 10-hour wear. This is definitely a lighter coverage than most concealers, being more of the sheer-to-medium persuasion, meaning it's not quite heavy duty enough for my under eye circles. I find this works much better for evening out my complexion, and it covers minor scarring really well. I love how the lightweight formula feels like nothing on the skin, making it ideal for low-key minimal makeup days. The formula is super creamy and more hydrating than many other concealers I've tried, which makes it ideal for drier complexions like mine, however, I do find that it can sometimes look a little bit too shiny towards the end of the day for my liking.

Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer

The newly repackaged version of the original Boi-ing concealer boasts the same great formula as the original, with a full coverage that hides all of my blemishes and scarring. The heavy nature of this formula does make it prone to creasing in my experience, particularly under my eyes, but it's not drying or chalky so it's easy enough to re-blend and fix. Although it claims to have a matte finish, I find it to be more on the dewy side, and a tad greasy. It's far from sliding off my face but does need a bit of powder to set, which is a bit annoying having to add more product when the concealer is already quite heavy duty. For me, this is best saved for really bad skin days, when the mother of hormonal spots has taken up residence on my chin or the dark circles are out in force.

Boi-ing Brightening Concealer

Brightening concealers are a new love of mine, having recently discovered the joys of colour correction when it comes to concealing redness and hiding my dark undereye circles. Formerly known as Erase Paste, the Boi-ing Brightening Concealer has been a real stand out product for me, with the slight salmon tinge making the dark bags that grace my under eye a thing of the past. It is a bit warmer toned, so I was concerned about how well this would blend into my ultra-pale skin, but it's actually a perfect match and blends like a dream. Again, like the rest of the concealers in their range, this has a really creamy formula but feels less greasy to me. It doesn't crease, which is exactly what I look for in an under eye concealer, and the full coverage formula works some serious magic in my experience.

Boi-ing Hydrating Concealer

Fake Up was one of the first Benefit products I ever tried, so I was glad to see that it was still part of their range, albeit with a new name and packaging! The Hydrating Concealer is housed in a hydrating balm enriched with Vitamin E and is perfect for dry areas like my nose. For some reason, the lighter shade of this is slightly darker than the Airbrush and Industrial Strength variations, which is a tad annoying as it can be a little bit too dark for my skin at times. The coverage is sheer enough that it can be easily blended out to match, so it's not the end of the world, I'd just prefer a bit more consistency across the range.

Benefit Boi-ing Concealer Review Airbrush Brightening Industrial Strength Hydrating | Colours and Carousels - Scottish Lifestyle, Beauty and Fashion blog

At £17.50 a pop, I feel like it's unlikely that someone's going to be rushing out to buy the whole range straight away. It's good to have a range of different products for different looks/different skin days and the range as a whole is great, but I think that if I had to recommend just one to pick up it would have to be the new Airbrush formula as it feels like the most versatile! Saying that, though, the Brightening Concealer has seriously impressed me, and I can see myself repurchasing in the future. The only disappointing thing for me from the collection has to be the inconsistency in shades, which as someone who struggles to find shades pale enough in the first place is a bit annoying. I feel like brands need to have so much more than the standard light, medium, dark selection these days and that would be something I'd love to see Benefit improve on in the future.

Remember how, just a little bit over two weeks ago, I was talking about how I desperately hoped that turning 22 would mark the end of my shitty year? The day came and went, leaving me full of fresh optimism and an outlook for the remainder of 2017 that could only be described as "sunny", but then life happened. A mere four days into my 22nd year, in a taxi back from the train station, I was involved in a car accident. At that moment, overwhelmed by the shock, I remember laughing to myself in disbelief about how yet another awful thing had happened to me when I was so convinced that my luck was changing. It only lasted a few minutes, before I started sobbing hysterically, which is how I remained for the rest of the evening. I am so grateful that, although my injuries are painful and frustrating, it wasn't any worse. I'm grateful for my friend Sarah for coming to my rescue on the side of a busy motorway slip road when I had no idea what to do, and I'm grateful for the diazepam and co-codamol cocktail that helps me sleep even when the pain is at its worst.

A Spa Day at Gleddoch Hotel

If I could spend every day at a spa, I would. Floating around in hot tubs, wearing fluffy dressing gowns and forgetting about the world outside. To kickstart my birthday celebrations last week, Sarah and I headed to Gleddoch Hotel in Langbank for a chilled out spa day with afternoon tea at their Imperia Spa, which is basically my idea of heaven. Gleddoch is located just outside of Glasgow, a mere 20 minutes from the city centre and 35 minutes from the stunning shores of Loch Lomond. Despite being so close to the city, Gleddoch feels like a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre crowds, making it the perfect spot for a day of relaxation.

On Wednesday morning, we set off in the very heavy rain towards Gleddoch, ready to hide from the torrential downpour and soak in the pool. It was a really easy drive, with the hotel being based just off the M8 and very well signposted after leaving the motorway. Straight away I was struck by the view from the hotel, which sits on top of a hill, which despite the thick cloud offered a panoramic outlook over the River Clyde towards Dumbarton.
